W&OD 70 Series Interurban by First Person Scale Models

This is a 3D-print file (only) for a Washington and Old Dominion 70-series interurban (prototype photo on this web site). The car was custom-designed by the designer (a young man attending college in the D.C. area) for an S-scale modeler. Rather than getting into the business of printing and shipping these models, the designer has made the design files available for sale. If you have a printer or access to one, you can choose the level of detail you want based on the printer used, using these files. The files will generate the model shown in the CAD drawing, so you will need to provide the chassis and the running gear to complete the model. The W&OD operated in Northern Virginia from 1912 through 1968. The line was created out of the merger of other lines that started as early as 1855.

GE 44- & 70-tonners by Smoky Mountain Model Works

Jim King, owner of Smoky Mountain Model Works, announced that he is retiring the GE 44-ton and 70-ton kits that he produced a number of years ago. The 44-tonners came out in late-2009 and the 70-tonners in late-2008. Both have been popular over the years, but Jim says it is time to retire those kits. If you are interested in purchasing these kits, visit his web site to view the kits' options and prices. Based on your response, he may make new underframe molds from existing patterns to match the remaining bodies, fill the orders, then close them out. These are body kits only (complete except for trucks, but does include sideframes). To complete the construction of the models, the modeler may want to consider the Stanton Drive manufactured by NorthWest ShortLine (NWSL), which makes S-scale versions of that drive.

FM H10-44 Re-run (updated) by Smoky Mountain Model Works

Smoky Mountain Model Works is planning to do a re-run of this engine's kit. The photo shows Bob Hogan's model from the first run of the kit. At this point in time the company is accepting a no-money-down reservation. Jim previously stated that the model comes with Stanton drives, but NorthWest ShortLine have over a two-month backlog on orders, so he is proceeding with this kit as the "unpowered" version. This version will accept the Stanton drives, so when they become available again, you should be able to install them. The unpowered kit is listed at $235 plus shipping. The kit will include the SMMW AAR-A sideframes. Contact the company with your reservations.
